I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube videos lately trying to decide what I was going to do next. As I don’t really have the money to buy new makeup products to review or try out while I’m living at my mom’s house waiting for my lease to run out at my previous place. And after watching several Glam & Gore and Kelly Eden videos, it dawned on me that I should just do makeup tutorials or “Get Ready With Me” style videos. You don’t see a whole lot of those these days on YouTube and I used to love watching them. So that’s exactly what I’m going to start doing more of on my main channel. Just filming myself do my makeup and then doing a voice-over later. I fine that to be the easiest way to do them without the video turning out to be like an hour long.
Continuing on with my makeup routines/get ready with me this is how I typically do a smokey eye. I was trying something different in the video where I did only music instead of voice over. Not sure what I think of it at the moment, so please let me know your thoughts as I would love to hear them!
One of my favorite eye shadow looks is a soft muted purple tone as it looks really natural and I feel like my eyes really pop when I wear this color. Plus since getting ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Marshmallow, I find this makes that shade a lot more wearable when I’m getting ready in the morning for work.
I saw a lot of YouTubers doing this and thought I would get it a whirl myself. I knew I wanted to go with something natural but on the side of bronze or gold. So I went through my entire makeup collection to come up with identical looks, on one side of my face I would only be using high end products and on the other only use drug store products. I did switch sides a few times by accident, but for the most part they look completely the same.
